We’re not too much into investing in things in our household. Making investments is a big deal, and I never really know what’s a ‘good investment’ and what’s bad, there’s so many factors to look at when you do invest, and I’m not sure tat we’re totally ready for that, or to make that first move further more, do we even have the time or money to invest? I did recently hear about being able to invest in wine, that sort of peaked my interest a bit more.
I like wine, I know some things about it, and we’ll… I like wine!
But what is a wine investment? What factors do you need to look into? How do you figure out what the wine marking is going to look like? There’s loads of things to consider, it’s just not as simple as just saying “I Like Wine”. You need to figure out if it’s a good investment, which wines would you like to invest in? How long have they been around? How popular are they?
If you’re investing in a new vineyard, remember, you need to think about storage costs, and financing to get the wine into the market and off the ground. How much money will you have tied up in the investment for the first ear or so? Although storage costs aren’t hard to figure out, it’s still something to think about.
Too much for my brain I tell ya! So, I think for me investing in wine simply means, keeping more than 4 bottles at a time, in my home, that I have for guests, parties etc. and that I won’t drink just because “I like wine”!
Honestly, let’s be serious, I’m not going to take the time to look into vineyards, into the longevity and popularity, I just like wine! Red, White, Blush you name it I’ll try it. So investing in such a thing, would probably go over my head and overwhelm me in no time. However, one day I’d love to have a wine cellar and keep all of my ‘investment’ in there. I could just dream of a large room, bottles everywhere, wooden cases of wine, just in a room, waiting to be opened!
Do you invest? In anything? Perhaps you’re like me and dream of a ‘home’ investment of wine? Maybe you already have one, what I’d like to know is where you store it, what’s your favorite wine?
